Recovering Biblical Manhood & Womanhood by Wayne Gruden,Wayne A. Grudem,John Piper



This book is almost a manual for the recovering of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood as well as for the rejection of that which is not Biblical in that matter. The book has chapters on exegetical and theological Studies, Studies from related disciplines like Church history, biology, psychology, sociology and law and contributions on how to apply and implicate it all in family and church. Every chapter, each written by another evangelical author, is so full of rich information that it gives the impression as if all possible questions have been answered.

Too often, people use one verse or another to justify their positions on just about everything. One word of caution - if you are dead set against Piper and Grudem from the beginning, this book won't change your mind. It's not supposed to. Rather, for those who may not see the issue as relevant in our day and age, this book should motivate you to look into the issue more and leave with the opinion that the roles of men and women within ministry are in fact very important, biblically based, and evident within the Bible.

He is a cofounder of Together for the Gospel, a senior fellow of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, and was the president of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals from 2004-2012. Ligon and his wife, Anne, have two children and live in Jackson, Mississippi.

John Piper, Wayne Grudem, and a host of others offer a defense of biblical marriage: one man and one woman, reflecting Christ and his church. 50 Crucial Questions About Manhood and Womanhood. 2006, Crossway Books. Piper and Grudem have achieved a commendable breadth of subject area supported by clear, specific, and precise treatment-all of which consistently make the case for ‘biblically balanced male leadership’ in home, church, and society. Michael G. Maudlin, Discipleship Journal. The best book in print today on this subject.

Enter Wayne Gruden and his book. I was drawn to his book by yet another book "What's The Difference" by John Piper. His writings led me to more serious in depth works on the subject during which I came across the name Gruden. Several speakers at a conference in Dallas, Texas, held March 2022, 2000, addressed those new challenges and new insights as they related to manhood and womanhood in marriage.

Crossway Books published the book in 1991 for the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW). CBMW, an international interdenominational evangelical Christian organisation, has a board and staff committed to a view of gender roles they dub complementarian.

New preface included.

by John Piper, Wayne Grudem. Published August 8, 2006 by Crossway Books in Wheaton, Il. .A controversy of major proportions has spread through the church. Recent generations bear witness to the rise of "evangelical feminism" - a movement that has had a profound impact on all of life, challenging some of our basic Christian beliefs. For single men and women (and the rest of us), John Piper. A vision of Biblical complementarity : manhood and womanhood defined according to the Bible, John Piper. An overview of central concerns : questions and answers, John Piper and Wayne Grudem. Male-female equality and male headship : Genesis 1-3, Raymond C. Ortlund, Jr. Women in the life and teachings of Jesus, James A. Borland.

What I like about the book is it doesnt simply assume that a 1950s view is correct

The "evangelical feminism" movement is addressed by 22 men and women who have commited their talents to produce the most thorough response yet to the issues raised. All main passages of Scripture that are relevant to the questions are considered.

First, this book is very much inside baseball for the Christian evangelical sphere (meaning if you don't know Christ Jesus, if you haven't come to the point of wanting to die to the evil inside you and live with His help, pick up a Bible, visit a church, and ask questions, the topic of this can wait a long time). The authors try to present arguments in favor of an hierarchal view of the sexes/genders that is God honoring and Biblical. Biblical is a tough word, as the Bible has prostitutes who get rewarded for faith, and a virgin who is killed to fulfill her dad's vow to God, while promoting reliance on God's forgiveness and morality. My view going in was that, as a man, God gives me certain responsibilities to/for women. My concern was that this book would help authoritative men to feel justified in abuse. The author's share that concern and repeatedly clarify that authority isn't synonymous with tyranny or abuse.

Each chapter is a separate essay, often by a different author, most dealing with a distinct Bible passage and addressing a question about the sexes. As such the quality, vigor, goal, and background of each chapter is a little different. Many are academically minded, so their essays are dry but rewarding. Some are much more poetic, so their chapters are less rigorous but instead allow for refocusing the questions, broader Biblical context, and can stand alone better. It isn't about women in the kitchen, men in the field/office/world (which is good, because that's not what the Bible teaches) but about loving service in care (for men) and loving service in support (for women). It isn't about black and white, but tendencies. It isn't about "where's my dinner?" or "cars vs dolls" but a man's willingness, responsibility, and authority to take risks for a woman and a woman's willingness and responsiveness to accept (or reject) those overtures.

In the end, I have become convinced that along with manly responsibility comes certain authority, but I am not convinced I like the idea altogether. I pray God works in me, and all Christian men (whether they read this book or not) to mature and humble with the authority we only have from and in line with Jesus.

Explaining the roles of men & women, the way God intended. Well written using the Word of God. Hollywood & the culture has reduced women to objects to be used & discarded. Men are not acting like men. Don't get Kindle version as there will be pages you can't read & font won't change. The are several errors in the writing that are not in hard copy. I purchased hard copy after not being able to read 5 pages in a row.

Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood is not a new view on these subjects. I enjoyed this book immensely because Grudem embraces scripture in a very truthful manner for those of us who are concerned with God's views on these two subjects. For anyone who is interested in a Biblical world view on manhood and womanhood, you will not be disappointed.

Intriguing because it comes from multiple fields of study. This is not an ax to grind by a few old die-hard traditionalists. Manhood and womanhood are eternally contemporary and complimentary.

No matter your perspective—complementarian or egalitarian—this is a must read. This updated version with new preface & appendix on kephalē is worth it.
Reasonable, respectful, relevant and recommended. One of my favorite aspects of the book is how it comes from multiple fields of study.
